Supervised Child Visitation Parent Guidelines

There are many other guidelines to be discussed in the Intake Interview. The following are examples of visitation guidelines:

  • The monitor will be present at all times during the visit.
  • The monitor will document interactions taking place between parent and child during the visitation.
  • The monitor is mandated by the Court to ‘redirect’ a parent should they violate a visitation guideline (see 2023 California Rules of Court 5.20 tab for more details).
  • The monitor cannot relay messages between non-custodial and custodial parents, except when communication is regarding the arrangement of visitations.
  • Cancellations MUST be communicated prior to a 24 hour period of the visitation to avoid a cancellation fee.

The Custodial parent:

  • Will arrive fifteen (15) minutes prior to the start of the scheduled exchange and return exactly at the end of the scheduled exchange. Custodial parent and/or designees will be required to leave the area immediately upon the exchange of child(ren) and picking up child(ren).

The Non-custodial parent:

Will arrive at the exact hour of the scheduled exchange and will return fifteen (15) minutes prior to the end of the scheduled exchange.

Use of alcohol, non-prescribed drugs, cigarettes or cell phone calls during visits are prohibited.

Refer to 2023 California Rules of Court 5.20 for full list of parental guidelines.
